Neil Lennon: Celtic boss has an important week of fixtures ahead
Neil Lennon will assess his Celtic squad over the next few days after they picked up a stack of injuries in their Champions League tie against Helsingborg.
Kris Commons and Georgios Samaras scored the goals that gave the Scottish champions the victory to leave them on the cusp of the group stages.
Celtic will face a trip to Inverness this weekend before they play the return leg at Parkhead next week against their European opponents.
However, Lennon will have to patch up some of his walking wounded over the next few days to ensure they are fit for the upcoming fixtures.
"Joe Ledley rapped his groin, Thomas Rogne is struggling with his ankle, Beram Kayal is feeling his ankle and Scott Brown had a touch of cramp towards the end," he said.
"Kelvin (Wilson) has a touch of shin splints but he should be okay for the weekend. We will have Victor Wanyama back and Paddy McCourt will be fit.
"So we will have to see how Joe, Beram and Thomas are and also Kris Commons, who, ever since the Inter Milan game, has had a problem with his ankle and we will see how he is in the morning.
"These guys might have to shut down for a few days."
